Once a week I head down to Richmond to go thrift shopping at Value Village. On my way to work I saw a homeless man. No shoes, toenails like claws, barely dressed and all his possessions in transparent plastic bags. He saw me walking and practically jumped out of the way to be polite. When I approached him to give him some money, he was scared at first and then overjoyed and then very thankful. It was very humbling to encounter someone with so little. I'm thankful to still be working and having enough to at and enough to wear. There are plenty of those in this city who do not have even that much. In these stressful times, we have to remember to still be kind to one another, because we are all human beings.
